The following Wendish families migrated to South Africa on the 'Peter Godeffroy' from Hamburg arriving in Capetown 19 Nov 1859: KEIPFER, Friedrich 39 (Landmann from Preilack) with wife Anne 45, Hans, 18, Christiane 11 Anne 9, and Friedrich 5. SCHWELLA, Martin 40 (Landmann from Preilack) with wife Elisabeth 40, Martin 20, Marie 17, and Mathes 8. KAINA, Georg 43 (Landmann from Preilack) with wife Anna 43, Marie 23, Anna 17, Elisabeth 14, Christiana 12, and Friedrich 5. (I have a list of Passengers, but not sure if any others were Wends.) After 5 years, the KAINA family moved on to New Zealand on the barque 'Alfred' - perhaps the only Wends who made New Zealand their home.
